Ms Jayadevan wrote, “Today, I’m that random stranger to someone.” She posted a photo of a letter she received from a Kerala-based engineering college thanking her for her scholarship support.

The Vidya International Charitable Trust (VICT), which manages the Vidya Academy of Science and Technology in Thrissur, expressed gratitude to Ms Jayadevan in a letter.

“VICT established educational institutions to provide quality education to deserving youth at affordable cost, and to help financially weak but bright students by offering scholarships… We once again thank you for your generosity to support the program which will in turn help a student accomplish his/her cherished dream of becoming a professional engineer,” the letter read.

On the microblogging platform, Keerthi Jayadevan’s post has received over 20,000 “likes” and hundreds of positive comments.
